About the Speaker

Mary Alice’s interest in science and technology led to a 20-year career in different areas of applied physical science. Through those years, her love for God permeated every aspect of her daily work. Whether supporting research by tornado chasers as a meteorologist at the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Oklahoma, making live broadcasts during severe weather outbreaks on NOAA Weather Radio, troubleshooting operational software at sea as an engineer and researcher in underwater acoustics, or co-managing a division of 140 engineers and scientists in development of the ground system for the Hubble Space Telescope, prayer was her constant guiding and motivating force.

As interesting as her career was, Mary Alice found that she wanted more time to focus on her most rewarding scientific endeavor: exploring her relationship with God. So, in 2002, Mary Alice made the transition from manager, engineer, and earth scientist to the full-time ministry as a Christian Science practitioner, where divine guidance continues to be her mainstay as she helps people every day in praying about such challenges as careers, finances, health, and relationships. She is also an authorized teacher of this Science and has had a number of articles published in the Christian Science periodicals.

She has given talks on Christian Science to interfaith groups and college comparative religion classes for twenty years, and, since 2010, she has been speaking to a broader range of audiences as an international speaker on the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.


October is a month where many wear pink to support breast cancer awareness and other women’s health issues. But what can we do to feel comforted or even completely healed when faced with such a daunting disease? Christian Science Lecturer Maryl Walters shares from her experience how she’s used divine Love (God) to heal all kinds of issues and transform individuals’ lives.

Join us for a brief talk and Q&A in our Sunday School. We look forward to seeing you there!
